So... I haven't been in my craft room lately but, I have been creative :0) Caleb loves Legos and has a bunch of them. Well, anyone with little boys, knows that they never stay together very long. After about two weeks, not working on them every day, we are coming to the end of completing the building process, Yay! Here is a peak at the table

He has several sets that have some missing pieces that we think got mixed up with some of Dallas's so we will go through those soon. Here are some closer shots of the Police station and Garage

Hope you all have had a creative week! Hugs!

A handmade chair

Here are a couple of shots showing off a handmade chair my son Dallas made in his 8th grade Technology class this week. I love it! And...he even carried it all the way from school, not that far :0) Cracked me up that he didn't call and ask for a ride, lol. This was made out of a 2x3 piece of plywood :0)

Pretty neat huh? I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Two new paper pads :o)

So Jeremy and I went out on Saturday for dinner to celebrate our Anniversary :0) Driving around a little before our reservation at Maggiano's he spotted a Joanne's and said we were going to go look around. Well, they had their DCWV paper pads for half off so I spotted these two and he got them for me :0) I love them and can't wait to make some albums or something.

The one on the left is out of my comfort zone but I love all the papers in it. They are definitely vintage so that is a little challenging. Hugs!

Sick of scraps :0)

So... Today I decided to cut down all of my scraps. The larger pieces anyway :0) The size I chose was 4 x 5 1/4 to use on cards. Check out this stack!

Here is a side view :0) This will make a lot of cards!

Now I just have to sort them :0)

Halloween cards

Here are a few Halloween cards that Caleb made on Monday. I put the paper on the front and he did the rest. We used a mat stack by Tim Coffey :0) The stamps were from Michael's and WalMart. I cut out the images for him and he put them on some foam squares for dimension. I think he did a good job, what do you think?

Here is one I did :0)
I just love Halloween!

Birthday card

This is a Birthday card I made for my son Maverick's best friend. He and Austen are going out on Saturday with Austen's parents for some German food :0) We'll slip some cash in this for him since it's too complicated to buy a gift for a 15 year old boy now days :0)

 The boys are big time gamers with the computer and xbox 360 so this is very appropriate.

I actually used the edge of my scissors to distress the edges on this. I like it! I want to do more of this. Hope you can see it good enough :0)

I hope you all have a wonderful three day weekend!
